Chafing...... Ouch!!!

Today I ran in a pair of shorts that I'd never worn before. I had to stop after 4 miles because I couldn't bear the pain of the seam rubbing on my inner thigh.




It's not as bad as this poor guys.... But it helps as a good visual!

Here's a tough question:
Which is worse..... Getting the chafing, or showering after you've got chafing?

My vote is for the latter.

Gotta get out the Aquaphor.

Oh my gosh! That's bad chaffing. I have scars all over my body from chaffing, but nothing like your picture. I'd have to say that showering afterward is the worst. I cake on "Glide" and that helps, and I tend to wear shirts with no side seams and/or shirts with sleeves. Tanks are the worst. I've found that vaseline works the best, but it leaves a greasy mess, and I'm not into that, so I opt for CAKING on the "Glide." Good luck. chaffing is tough!

Definitely the showering after. There are times when our neighbours ask why there was screaming coming from our house - it's usually the chafing that you didn't know you had.

I agree that it's the showering after that is the worst. I take great care but sometimes chaffing still happens.

Saw your blog linked to on Kovas's!

WOW! That is some awesome chafing. I will never complain about mine (okay, that's a lie) again! ;)

Definitely the shower! OUCH!

Thanks for stopping by Kilax! Chafing hurts too much to not complain about ;-)

All part of the sport I suppose :)

Ouch, yes, the surprise shower burn is the worst!

I hate chaffing! Huge body glide fan, but the shower is def worse. New clothes are always bothersome, but it's worse when it's something you've worn before. That happened at my last Tri. Chaffed under one arm and the zipper tab at the top made my chest bleed. And I've worn this kit before!

Stacey Pomerleau said...

I totally forgot about the zipper tab...... I have to cut them out of my jerseys for that reason.

Better to prevent with a good cream.
Glad that it is not your picture.

Stacey Pomerleau said...

Definitely the shower after! Sometimes I don't even realized I've chafed until I've hit the showers. Ouch!
